144,000 (8) The Mighty Ones

I closed part 7 by saying,

“Those who come to Yehovah will be happy and content for almost a whole year after they join themselves (and their families) to the sent one nearest them. But in one single day something is going to happen which will turn the whole earth into a desolation and a wilderness. And it will be at this time that we will see these sent ones, these beings, these mighty ones go to war as the arm of Yehovah. You thought they seemed like “Gods” already? Wait until you see them fight. When the strength of the world comes against them, you will see Yehovah defend the few against the many.”

To understand the coming last days, we must have a better understanding of the series of events that will take place. And that is what this series (here is part 1) and my “Last Days” series is all about. These beings, these mighty ones, are the nation born in a day, at Passover and they are sealed and set-apart, as Yehovah’s Shalachim, His sent ones, at Shavuot.

It is at this Shavuot that people begin to come to Yehovah at each of these set-apart locations all over the world. It is in those locations that everyone who comes to them will receive provision, protection and instruction in righteousness.

But the elohim (the lawmakers and judges) of the world are scared; they see what is happening and realize  that all this trouble started at Passover the year before. So in a effort to ward off further loss of their workforce they will make a proclamation saying that there will be no more keeping of Passover. And this prohibition is the taking away of the eternal, the continual, the perpetual, the taw-meed (תּמיד, tâmîyd).

WordStudy defines taw-meed as: “A masculine noun meaning “continuity.” This word commonly refers to actions concerning religious rituals.’

And from the time that the continual H8548 slaughter is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is given, there shall be a thousand, two hundred, and ninety days. (Dan 12:11)

It appears to me that the elohim of the world will put forth this prohibition exactly 30 days prior to Passover with a warning that anyone who participates in Passover will be killed. Pharaoh tried to do the same thing. Yehovah told Moses to speak to Pharaoh.

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.” But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.” ‘ ” (Exo 4:22-23)

This prohibition against the keeping of a true Passover IS the “abomination that makes desolate.” But we, Yehovah’s people, are going to do what He expects from us in each of our locations (all over the world); and because we obey only Him, we will see the might of the world come against us like a flood right after Passover.

So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. (Rev 12:15-16)

It is at this time that we will see the first of two great shakings in the earth. This one will plunge the earth back into the dark-ages and destroy the infrastructure of the New World Order (NWO). The moon and the sun will darken, cities, homes, factories will fall and the stars will be diminished. (I talk about this in my blog entitled “Are You ready for the Wilderness?“) This first great shaking of the earth which will kill / swallow the flood (which comes against us in all of our places), turns the world into a desolation and begins the 1260 day count-down to the great day of Yehovah. The second shaking will be more violent than the first and will seem as if the stars are falling as well. But what is falling from the skies are 75 pound chunks/hunks of burning brimstone (just like what happened in Sodom). In this context, you should also read my blog called “Will a True Passover Initiate the Great Tribulation?

Well, now things get very exciting for Yehovah’s shalachim, His mighty ones. Because they represent Him, the flood was not coming against His mighty ones (and all those who have come to them in the past year), it was coming against Him; and this attack on Him is license for Him and His host (His tse-va-ot) to go to war (in each of their locations) in order to make the whole world His. We are the mighty ones, a people who come, great and strong. The world will have no defense against us, we are the arm of Yehovah who look and act like, dare I say, “super heroes”.

The prophets of Yehovah talk about these men in many places, but Joel 2 is one of the most descriptive. They have the strength of a horse and can run as quickly, they can jump 75 feet in the air, they run between weapons and are not cut down; and when they yell / roar everyone around them pees their pants and runs away.  They  will not, and can not be killed!

Here is a  portion of Joel 2 for your consideration.

mighty onesBlow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of Yehovah is coming, for it is at hand. A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness.
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. a people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations.
A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness. Surely nothing shall escape them.
Their appearance is like the appearance of horses [muscular and strong]; and like swift steeds, so they run with a noise like chariots; over mountaintops they leap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble. Like a strong people set in battle array. Before them the people writhe in pain; all faces are drained of color.
They run like mighty ones, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down. They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall; they climb into the houses, they enter at the windows like a thief.

The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. Yehovah gives voice before His army [His host], for His camp is very great. For strong is the one who executes His word. For the day of Yehovah is great and very terrible. Who can endure it? (Joe 2:1-11)

Even Yasher talks about Jacob’s 10 sons going to war against the 7 great cities of the Canaanites. This 7 day battle also starts with a great shaking of the earth which puts fear into the hearts of all their (Canaan’s) mighty men. 50, 60 70,000 die when Jacob’s 10 sons (all in their teens and early 20s), and 102 servants go to war along with their dad (105 years old) and his bow. Here is a sampling of what they can do, but you should take the time to read chapters 37 – 40 in Yasher. Here is a PDF, my latest working copy of Yasher, which I use in my Sabbath class each week.

Yasher 37:17 And when Jacob ceased praying to Yehovah the earth shook from its place, and the sun darkened, and all these kings were terrified and a great consternation seized them.
18 And Yehovah hearkened to the prayer of Jacob, and Yehovah impressed the hearts of all the kings and their hosts with the terror and awe of Jacob’s seed.
19 For Yehovah caused them to hear the sound of chariots, and the sound of mighty horses from Jacob’s seed, and the sound of a great army accompanying them.
20 And these kings were seized with great terror at Jacob’s seed, and whilst they were standing in their quarters, behold Jacob’s seed advanced upon them, with one hundred and twelve men, with a great and tremendous shouting.

Yasher 37:23 And Jacob’s seed came near and advanced against all these kings and their armies, and they saw, and behold it was a very mighty people, numerous as the sand of the sea.
24 And Jacob’s seed called unto Yehovah and said, Help us O Yehovah, help us and answer us, for we trust in thee, and let us not die by the hands of these uncircumcised men, who this day have come against us.
42 And Jacob’s seed caused fifteen thousand of their men to fall, and they smote them as if smiting at gourds, and the rest fled for their lives.

Yasher 38:29 And Jacob’s seed came near to break open the doors of the gates of the city, and the inhabitants did not let them, for from the top of the wall they were casting stones and arrows upon them.
30 And the number of the people who were upon the wall was about four hundred men, and when Jacob’s seed saw that the men of the city would not let them open the gates of the city, they sprang and ascended the top of the wall, and Judah went up first to the east part of the city.
31 And Gad and Asher went up after him to the west corner of the city, and Simeon and Levi to the north, and Dan and Reuben to the south.
32 And the men who were on the top of the wall, the inhabitants of the city, seeing that Jacob’s seed were coming up to them, they all fled from the wall, descended into the city, and concealed themselves in the midst of the city.

Yasher 39:7 And the inhabitants of Arbelan heard the noise of the shouting of Jacob’s seed, and their roaring like the noise of lions and like the roaring of the sea and its waves.
8 And fear and terror possessed their hearts on account of Jacob’s seed, and they were terribly afraid of them, and they retreated and fled before them into the city, and Jacob’s seed pursued them to the gate of the city, and they came upon them in the city.

When you see these mighty ones fight you will understand why Isaiah says, “those who wait upon Yehovah will renew their strength”.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, Yehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths [the young men who never get tired] shall faint and be weary, and the young men [the strength and the might of the world’s armies] shall utterly fall, but those who wait upon Yehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (Isa 40:28-31)

It is these shalachim (sent ones), Yehovah’s mighty ones (a.k.a the 144,000) and those who join themselves to them (as their “pure of heart” servants) who will be preserved through the great day of Yehovah at the end of the 1260 day’s tribulation and be brought into the millennial kingdom alive and well; just as Noah and those with Him came through the flood. Everyone else will perish from the earth and be forgotten forever.

I, for one, can’t wait to see Yehovah fulfill all the words that He has spoken concerning the coming last days; He always does what He says.

This Side Of The Jordan

this side of the jordanThese are the words [hadavarim] which Moses spoke unto all Israel on this side of the Jordan; in the wilderness in the plain across Suph [the plain at Sinai], between Paran and Tophel; and at Lavan, and at Hazeroth, and at Di-zahav. (Deu 1:1)

Deuteronomy begins with Moses speaking to Israel’s seed on the plains of Moab, just across and a little south of Jericho. So when I read the words “this side of the Jordan” I assumed that the place we were standing on was the place called “this side of the Jordan.” I assumed this because sometimes my understandings are very small and unable to see the larger picture Yehovah is presenting for those who have eyes (spiritual eyes) that do see.

Sometimes it is easy to be blinded by our present circumstances and miss the reality of what Yehovah wants to do in our lives. I looked at the map in this picture and did not find a single one of those bolded places in the above verse. “What is going on here?”, I asked myself.

Then it hit me. Context, context, context is what this is all about; understanding Yehovah’s word within the context of Yehovah’s word. Where did Yehovah speak all His words [His davarim] to us prior to our coming to this place across from Jericho? Suddenly I realized that all these places on this side of the Jordan; were not that place opposite Jericho, but rather that place we have been since we crossed over the Red Sea (40 years before) and entered into Yehovah’s ruler-ship. These seem to be the places where Moses received the words of Yehovah and gave them to His son, Israel. Continue reading This Side Of The Jordan

(6) In the Wilderness

Tabernacle in the wildernessIt will be during the 1260 days, 42 months, 3 1/2 years in the wilderness that most of the 7 seals, trumpets and plagues will be released on the earth. But just like the first time we were brought out of Egypt, Yehovah will again provide His people with a little sanctuary.

And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, … I will make a difference between My people and your people. ” (Exo 8:22-23)

And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. When My Master has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, then Yehovah will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. and there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain. (Isa 4:3-6)

“Son of man, your brethren, your relatives, your countrymen, and all the house of Israel in its entirety, are those about whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Get far away from Yehovah; this land has been given to us as a possession.’ Therefore say, ‘Thus says my Master, Yehovah: “Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.” ‘ Therefore say, ‘Thus says my Master, Yehovah: “I will gather you from the peoples, assemble you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.” ‘ (Eze 11:15-17)

It appears to me that the first exodus from Egypt by the masses and taking of the Promised Land is only a miniature shadow picture of what Yehovah will do in a last days, the second exodus, to reclaim the entire earth back for His glory. Continue reading (6) In the Wilderness

(5) The Great Exodus

This is part 5 of the Last Days Sequence of Events series; those who want to become Yehovah’s people are just now being called into the Wilderness by the 144,000 servants of Elohim that are scattered throughout the earth. Here are Yehovah’s first two messages that they will proclaim to the world.

“Fear Elohim [THE lawmaker and judge of the whole earth] and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Rev 14:7)

Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” (Rev 14:8)

Their message is “Come out from among her and separate yourselves unto Yehovah and His people.”

“Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! (Rev 18:2)

“Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (Rev 18:4)

Tabernacle in the wilderness thumbnailIt will be at this time that “the woman”, at least the wise and humble among her, will join themselves to one of these set-apart servants of Yehovah that have been lifted up all around the world. EVERYONE will have one of these men within walking distance and they will find provision, protection and instruction in righteousness in each of these locations.

Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Yehovah, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. (Rev 12:6) Continue reading (5) The Great Exodus

(6) The Desolation / Tribulation Begins

Desolation comes!

Because of the taking away of the everlasting and the setting up of the abomination, the earth will be made into a desolation and a wilderness as a result of the first great shaking. This first great shaking is one of two great earthquakes in the last days that will be monumental in scale, and the likes of which no one has ever experienced. As I have said in the past, Yehovah’s people are not going into the wilderness this time around; instead the wilderness is coming to us and few will be prepared for it.

I say “few will be prepared for it” because nothing that we do, in the flesh to prepare for this time of labor or trouble (1260 days, 42 months or 3 1/2 years) will not have any significant effect on our circumstances. In fact – the provisions for the flesh, which we have “set aside” for such a time as this, may cloud our judgment to the point that we will miss the opportunity to get to the Banners (the 144,000, the Elijah Prophet) that will be set apart by Yehovah, just prior to this first great shaking, to lead His people through this time of trouble.

Many have read, and know that just prior to the return of Yehovah’s Christ (Messiah Yeshua), there will be a great earthquake in which the sun will become dark, the moon will be turned red, every mountain and islands will be moves out of its place and even the stars will fall from their places in the heavens.
